And that it could be launched from country's Dongchang-ni site on the northwestern coast.
The paper said that the launch could happen between July 4 and July 8. The missile would fly over Japan towards Hawaii. However, it would be able to hit the main islands as the islands lie a little farther than the range of the missile.
